Escalating Anti-Iranian Tensions - by Stephen Lendman
Obama's spoiling for a fight with Syria and Iran.
Whether or not anti-Iranian rhetoric, saber rattling, sanctions, other policy measures, and recent events signal war isn't known. Growing dangers though mount.
America targets all independent regimes. At issue is replacing them with client ones.
In October, Washington falsely charged Iran with plotting to kill Saudi Arabia's US ambassador. In November, outdated, forged, long ago discredited, and perhaps nonexistent documents were used to claim Iran's developing nuclear weapons.
According to America's latest March 2011 intelligence estimate, no credible evidence proves it. Nor was Iran involved in 9/11.
Nonetheless, on December 15, Manhattan Federal Judge George Daniels said he'll sign an order accusing Iran, Hezbollah, and Al Qaeda of 9/11 responsibility.
In response to a lawsuit brought by family members of 9/11 victims, he claimed Iran provided material support to Al Qaeda. He based it on fake evidence and spurious testimonies from three Iranian defectors. Their affidavits remained sealed during court proceedings.
In late December, Daniels assessed Iran $100 billion in damages. According to attorney Dennis Pantazis:
"We have worked over eight years, consulted hundreds of intelligence experts, reviewed thousands of documents and reports and traveled to three continents and multiple countries to interview eyewitnesses. The ruling stands for the proposition that no matter how big or powerful evil is, it will always be revealed."
His rant omitted clear evidence of CIA and Mossad involvement, not Iran, Hezbollah or Al Qaeda. Among others, David Ray Griffin 's exhaustive research exposed the 9/11 lie.
On April 5, 2006, he said:
"It would seem, for many reasons, that the official story of 9/11, which has served as a religious Myth in the intervening years (and still does), is a myth in the pejorative sense of a story that does not correspond to reality."
In his newest book titled, "9/11: Ten Years Later," Griffin said:
"Getting the 9/11 lie exposed is essential. One obvious reason is simple justice," including for 9/11 family members, deserving most of all to know. "There also needs to be justice in the sense of punishment for those who engineered this crime," including top government, military, and intelligence officials. They're "guilty of murder and treason."
